Getting very pricey these days, even clutches are horrible expensive and one issue is the starter mounts from behind to it and tends to brakes mounting ears off on high compression LS1. A cable shift conversion is highly recommended or it will by so slush to shift that it gets annoying at the track. Done a few GTM's that way.
here most prefer an Audi tranny, much cheaper, holds much better up and even used in the Gumpert Apollo behind a 700hp twin turbo V8. Conversion plates exist for both.
the aforementioned Renault tranny used ion GT40 kit cars is a relict at best and uses a tiny small clutch, most of them on Ford need to use a fully modified Ford essex V6 flywheel which needs a ton of machining and balancing (that is the old 3.0l Capri engine from the UK), I have just been through with one of those conversion for an aging GT40 kit car. Not recommended
